Bismarck Century's Lucas Schweigert, who has verbally committed to play for the UND football program, was named the North Dakota Class AA Senior Athlete of the Year.
The Class AA all-state team and top honors were announced Thursday by the North Dakota High School Coaches Association.
Schweigert,a 6-foot, 270-pound nose guard, led the Patriots to a 9-2 record and anchored a defense that posted four shutouts and didn't allow more than 15 points to an opponent all season.
